Here's a card I made for my friend's birthday. I used the Inspired by Nature set. I love this set! The card stock colors are Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, and Natural White.The Classic ink colors are Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, and Always Artichoke. The ribbon and hardware are retired, but there are other great substitutes available from Stampin' Up!

You want S'more?!

I have had several requests for "S'more" information about this fun project! So... because I love what I do, and I share what I love... here you go!
-The box is from Stampin' Up! Sizzix Box #2 die. I ran it through my Big Shot using a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock.
-Randomly stamp the star image from the Under the Stars set using Basic Black Classic ink.
-The Large Oval punch was used to create the open window on the box.
-A small piece of Sticky Strip is used to hold the whole box together!
-The bear from the Under the Stars set was stamped twice. Once on Crumb Cake card stock, and once on Chocolate Chip textured card stock. -The tummy from the Chocolate Chip was cut out and adhered to the Crumb Cake bear using a Dimensional.
-The s'more was stamped on Crumb Cake card stock. It was colored using More Mustard and Chocolate Chip markers. The marshmallow was colored in using the White Signo Gel Pen!
-Cut out the s'more and adhere it to the bear paw using a Dimensional.
-Then adhere the bear and s'more to the box using Dimensionals.
-The s'more mix is Golden Graham cereal, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows. It is packaged in a small cello bag, and tied with Whisper White Grosgrain ribbon.
So there you have it! I shared what I love, will you share with me? I would love to see your S'more creations!

Just cover it!

Fabric is coming in the Holiday Mini!! It's sooo pretty and magical! Really! Look what it turned this ugly canvas in to...

Ok... so maybe it's not magical, but it sure is beautiful!
I used an 8"x8" square piece of the fabric, and a 7x7 piece of batting. A staple gun is all I needed to adhere both to the wood frame. I used the staple gun to adhere to Very Vanilla ribbon too. A brad in the center to give it a little something, and ta-da! A fun place to add photos or notes. I will be making a larger version soon - so easy!!
